This is an early example of the types of sounds that can be created electronically. It is uncertain if this modulated sawtooth wave was intended as a piece of electronic music or simply as a demonstration of a certain type of analog synthesizer. The accompanying documentation indicates it was one channel of a “Payne Box,” which may indicate that it was created by either Maggi Payne or John Payne, both composers of electronic music associated with KPFA during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
